Politics and Society in Soviet Ukraine, 1953–1980 is perhaps the most authoritative English-language work on this period yet to appear. Based on meticulous study and analysis of Soviet sources, particularly the Soviet press, it encompasses Soviet Ukraine from the death of Stalin to Shcherbytsky's rule as first party secretary. A final chapter on society examines economic aspects, religion and religious movements in Ukraine, and the Russification of Ukrainian society fostered by the Soviet regime.
